Conferences and Case Comps
Ready, Set, Market!
RSM is a case competition themed around marketing. It serves as an event for students to gain practical experience solving real world problems. It provides the opportunity for students to showcase their skills and abilities to their peers, faculty, as well as industry professionals and alumni. Attendees are provided a case three weeks prior to the competition, tasked with creating an effective solution to the problems discussed in the case. Attendees attend an opening and closing ceremony with keynote speakers and multiple workshops focused on professional, soft and technical skill development. Students present their solution to a panel of judges composed of alumni, industry professionals and faculty.

The Finance Innovation Competition (stylized as FinComp) is a FinTech case competition with the purpose of giving delegates exposure to a fast-growing/developing industry where they can make business decisions from the perspective of a FinTech professional. Delegates will be required to prepare a comprehensive solution to a challenging case relating to the FinTech space. The case will be released approximately one month in advance of the event to allow delegates to come up with creative and well-researched solutions. Due to COVID-19, both co-chairs took the proactive decision to host the entire case competition virtually. It is in the best interest of our attendees that their safety is prioritized and a seamless experience is delivered through digital means.
